Small and on wheels, Bauhaus is now a bus

- Marianna Guernieri

To mark the Bauhaus’ 100th anniversar­y, a motorised replica of the Dessau Bauhaus building will be travelling around the world to divulge new ways of teaching design. Using the familiar imagery of the famous German design school, Savvy Contempora­ry questions the dictat of western design teaching, raising questions around heritage, property, urbanity and conviviali­ty. The bus – which is part of the Spinning Triangles long term project — hides a 15 sq m apartment open to the public with events and exhibition­s. After Dessau and Berlin, it will travel to Kinhasa from 6 to 14 April, hosting a sympososiu­m and workshops. www.savvy-contempora­
